Flooded Remnants of Caesar Creek

Moody Evening Over Caesar Creek State Park

The Army Corps of Engineers dammed Caesar Creek in response to the Flood Control Act of 1938 thereby forming a 3,741-acre state park near Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio.  Prior to this work, the area hosted dry land and even a Quaker village.  Today, the reservoir stores storm waters until engineers can release its waters in a controlled fashion.  As a result, the reservoir fills formerly wooded lands as captured in this late autumn scene.  In this image, it was well after sunset where the damp air and dark skies had long chased away visitors thereby creating a sense of isolation and peace.

With dark heavy clouds hanging over Caesar Creek, the evening’s grey tones contrast sharply with a yellow leaf nestled in a shoreline tree stumpFlooded Remnants of Caesar CreekThe Army Corps of Engineers dammed Caesar Creek in response to the Flood Control Act of 1938 thereby forming a 3,741-acre state park near Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio.
